Some women in the USA really do lack confidence in themselves

A lawyer told the left-leaning The View program that she downplayed her sexuality because she couldn't stand how guys were "staring at" her chest:
Sunny Hostin shared her personal struggles with workplace harassment during her early years as a lawyer in a Friday discussion on “The View.”

Hostin, 55, claimed that after undergoing a breast reduction, she, like her female colleagues, refrained from reporting harassment since they were concerned about the potential negative effects on their careers.

“When I was coming up at the Justice Department and when I was coming up in law firms … we had options [to report harassment], but I wouldn’t dare use them,” Hostin continued. “So as not to be blackballed out of a position because the structure, it was a patriarchy.”

While reflecting on co-host Joy Behar’s recently published essay on workplace harassment, Hostin revealed the lengths she went to in order to be recognized for her professional abilities rather than her physical appearance.

“I recall so many interviews as a young lawyer where men never looked at my face. They just looked straight at my chest,” Hostin said. “And I started binding my breasts so that I could get a job on my qualifications.”

The conversation expanded as Alyssa Farah Griffin, White House Director of Strategic Communications for former President Trump, echoed Hostin’s sentiments, sharing her own experiences with workplace harassment despite the generational gap between them.
I get the feeling the citation of a former Trump staff employee was deliberate, just to take potshots at him over petty issues, whether direct or indirect. All that aside, seriously, is it really such a bad thing if men stare at a woman's rack, so long as they know it's wrong to be physically/sexually violent? Also note how Hostin employs the word "patriarchy", which seems to be quite a leftist codeword nowadays, and completely fails to consider even women in charge of a company can allow sexual misconduct to go about, recalling a rape scandal at a hotel in Eilat that was managed by a woman. And that Hostin would bind her breasts and/or undergo a reduction surgery is decidedly also insulting to the intellect, because that's only a form of self-degradation and succumbing to body-shaming. I'm sorry, but this is just simply not a good argument or example being set here, since what really matters is how the man goes about and behaves, not how the women dress. Say, was this intended as a swipe at Trump? Well in that case, one more reason why this wokenes rings so hollow.
